"Next Level" topped the chart for the first time at 8 p.m. on the 21st, and has also remained at the top of the chart as of 9 a.m. on the 22nd.
It beat the group BTS's "Butter," which topped the U.S. Billboard main single chart "Hot 100" for four consecutive weeks. "Butter" has not been coming down from the top spot on Melon's "24 Hits" chart since its release on the 21st of last month.
It is quite unusual for a rookie girl group to reach the top of the chart in its eighth month of debut.
Melon's "24 Hits" chart ranks usage on a cumulative basis of 24 hours, and only one user listens to it once per 24 hours, so it is not easy for idols with huge fandom to reach the top.
"Next Level," released by aespa on the 17th of last month, is a remake of a hip-hop song with the same name written as the OST of the movie "Fast and Furious: Hops & Show" by hit maker Young-jin Yoo, director of SM Entertainment.
At first, there was criticism that it was somewhat unpopular as a girl group song due to lyrics and unusual song composition that melted the avatar worldview.
However, the addictive chorus, which starts with "I'm on the Next Level," and the bridge climax between the chorus, which suddenly changes the mood of the song, became a hot topic and ranked step by step on the music charts.
Heize's "Happen Coincidence," Oh My Girl's "Dungeon Dance," Justin Bieber's "Pitch's," and Brave Girls' "Rollin'" beat songs that were recently used on music charts.
